Re: Excalibur 26 - Resto on a budget

Yeah, I've definitely become attached to it. The plans are to continue to refit the little things, get little things here and there caught up (refinish the teak for example, replace lifelines with...

Re: Excalibur 26 - Resto on a budget

Yes, Todd Lipps has an excellent blog and has helped me with information towards my own project. It was his writings and findings that allowed me to make the decision to take this on myself. What...

Re: Excalibur 26 - Resto on a budget

When they lifted her to put her in the water back in the beginning of the year, there was no wobble to be seen. I'll check again when I lift off the trailer hopefully this weekend. Planning on...

Re: Excalibur 26 - Resto on a budget

So earlier this week, I finally was able to get the boat home. Had a delay at the yard and it was rather nerve-wracking. I'm working 12 hour days, 7 days a week (I'm currently on day 20 straight with...

Re: Setting up for a couple of day off of the grid.

my .02 on it.

You should be fine with a small solar panel, probably even something as low as a 50 watt panel will keep up with you with what you're using. Probably even less. I run the same, nav...

Re: VOLVO OCEAN Race!

With all the media and options on the boats this year, I do hope they do leg documentaries as they have before. As much as I like watching the play-by-play, I do love the full episodes too. I know...

Re: NEW Sailing documentary, movie

That page layout, at least on Chrome and my work 19" monitor at 1280x1024 res, is awfully funky to stare at.

Re: eliminated engine...wheres my negative? jajaja

Got a Hurley 22 in my yard on a trailer if you're bored lol. Definitely looks to be a stout little thing. If nothing else happens with it, we might toss it in the lake next summer for a bit and see...

Re: chartplotter/sonar system for catalina 22

Correct, they won't give you water speed or temperature, just depth (and fishfinding). In my case, I was happy with the GPS speed instead, and if I want to know if the water is cold, I'll stick my...

Re: chartplotter/sonar system for catalina 22

For the first, yes, it's using the GPS to calculate your speed. However, if you want to add things like water temperature, and have a more exact speed constantly (some plotters only update every...

Re: Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

It looks like to me, from that picture, that it's basically a 2x12 or so, just painted and stuck on there. I would look into replacing the entire piece, and make sure to seal it properly before...

Re: Why do people still use depth sounders?

I haven't read all, and I'm sure I'm not alone, but in the lake I'm on currently, there is a lot of sediment that can move and accumulate in the inlet from the marina, so without the depth reading on...

Re: Anyone ever sold at a profit?

really depends on the deal. For example, the Hurley 22 that my brother and I picked up, even if you include the cost of the trailer refit to strengthen it, plus the few missing rigging parts, we...

Re: Excalibur 26 - Resto on a budget

One potential color scheme... we're going to shop another shade of Blue as well, instead of the green, but I do like the way this came out. I also did one with green for the entire deck and cabin,...

Re: Business Cards for your boat

If mine was worth showing off, or if I was more of a resource for advice than the novice I am, AND if I was somewhere other than a small inland lake marina, I would probably. Now that you mention...
